Want to make money with your photography? Learn how to sell Stock Images

For All of you that missed the first one

 

Want to make money with your photography?

Thought about getting into selling stock images, but don’t have a clue how?

Wondering what it takes to sell your images with stock agencies?


This presentation will give you a high level overview of what stock photography is and isn’t, trends in the industry, how getting involved in stock agencies can be a profitable way to sell your images and create a home-based photography business.

ABOUT TAKING STOCK IMAGES PHOTOGRAPHY
Taking Stock Images Photography will assist you in learning the in’s and out’s of selling your images on stock photography agencies. Not long ago, I made the leap into selling my images on stock photography agencies for profit. As I dove into this venture, I have learned, and continue to learn, that there is A LOT TO KNOW about selling images on stock agencies!

The Taking Stock Images plan is simple, I “hold your hand” and share with group members, the things I have learned along the way to building my portfolios and stock photography business. I continue to grow my portfolio, as I learn more and more about how to be successful in this business.

ABOUT TERI VIRBICKIS
Teri has over 25 years experience as a Marketing/Graphic Design professional who has worked her entire career helping large corporations and individuals create impact with their marketing campaigns. She is very passionate about helping people and companies learn how to generate buzz about their products and services, especially these days when budgets and economic resources are always under fire. When people ask her what she does, she will smile and add a little chuckle, then tell them she is an Impactologist! Naturally people ask “what the heck is an Impactologist”? Teri then will tell you, it’s simple, she practices IMPACTOLOGY: The Art of Creating Impact!

Her entire career, she has always been on the buying end of the stock photography world, until about 3 years ago. She has a vast knowledge and many years of experience, in the purchasing of images, for a wide range of usages in marketing campaigns, collateral and various other graphic design applications. She have come to know, that the purchase and usage of photographic images is not only big business, but also a very misunderstood business by most people. It wasn’t until she began to sell her own images, and learned the struggles photographers have when embarking on making a living with their photography. THERE IS SOOOOO MUCH TO KNOW, about the licensing/purchasing of photographic images. This is one of the reason why Taking Stock Images Photography was created, to assist photographers in learning about the in’s and out’s of the business of selling your images.
